Can't Send Webpage by Windows Live Mail

I have a Windows 7 computer with Windows Live Mail and when I want to send a webpage via email.....it won't let me do that. I had no problem doing this with Windows XP. What do I need to do in order to be able to send a webpage via Windows Live Mail? The Windows Live Mail is my default email program.
HELP!

sureword,

See if this will work for you.

Open Windows Live Mail by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking WLM.

Click the down arrow next to Create Mail, and then click Web Page.

In the "Enter the URL of the webpage you want to send box", type the address of the webpage you want to include in your e‑mail message, and then click OK.

A new message window opens containing the webpage you chose.
Enter the recipient's address in the To: box and an appropriate title in the Subject: box.
You can optionally type additional text in the message body.
When you are finished composing your message, click Send.

Can't send webpage via Windows Live Mail

So are you saying it's no longer possible to send a webpage via Windows Live Mail....like I used to do with Windows XP? That was such a great feature.....they need to do some changes in Windows 7 if this is the case. Thanks for your help.....I was hoping there was still a way to actually send an email from the webpage instead of having to go thru all of those extra steps.

That feature is built in to IE8 (as it was in previous versions of IE). Click on "page" in the "command bar" and select "send page by email". It should open your default email client with the web page in the text or message area. (The email options may have to be set for html email.)

When you set your defaults be sure to set them all every place. "Set your default programs" as well as "Set program access and computer defaults". One does not pick up on the other. Took me awhile to get IE to send links with WLM.

Just be sure that you have every thing you want default( browser,mail etc. ) set in the two places in quotes above. They are both listed in control panel / default programs. After that you should be able to click Page in your browser tool bar and have both send page by and send link by options not grayed out.
Sure hope it works for you.

Default Browser?
Do you have the Page button on IE8 Toolbar?
Is there a "send page by email option"?
Is there a "send link by email option"?
What happens if you choose those options?

Cannot send webpage by email

I mean IE is my default browser. Those two options that you asked about are not "black"......meaning I cannot choose them because it will not allow me to do so. This is the whole problem. Is there not a way for those options to be made available to me or not?
